Athletic Training Program Receives Initial Accreditation

The Mizzou SHP Athletic Training Program received notification today from the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE) of initial accreditation! Since the program began accepting students three years ago, director David Colt and faculty and staff have been working toward this milestone.

Completion of an accredited Athletic Training program is required for graduates to sit for the Board of Certification Examination for Athletic Training. “The seniors who are graduating next month put their faith in us when they started this program and next month they’ll graduate from an officially accredited program,” said Colt. “I couldn’t be happier for them!”
